Our Service Department is looking for the right technician to hire. 

Here is the ad:

HELP WANTED: Crane Repair Tech


Repair and maintain truck mounted cranes and related computer controlled operating and safety related systems. Hydraulic, welding, electrical trouble shooting experience needed. Union 701 shop.

FAX or email resume to Jim Hopkinson at 708-447-3730 or apply in person at:

Runnion Equipment Company, 7950 West 47th Street. Lyons, Illinois 60534

As the equipment soldl and serviced by Runnion Equipment Company becomes more sophisticated, our needs for the right technician have changed as well.  Hint:  We used to call them "mechanics".  Now, mechanical ability is only the basic knowledge required.  Among the changes: Familiarity with computers and file management as well as an ability to troubleshoot error codes and trace electrical connections through traditional wiring harnesses as well as circuit boards is a necessity.  The new hydraulics require the basic knowledge of pressure and flow as well as a familiarity with piping materials and the chemical properties of various hydraulic fluids.       

If you think you have what it takes, contact Jim Hopkinson our Product Support Manager.
